Recovery Information

Recovery Notes: 
On 9/16/14 (same day the bike was reported stolen), the CSBR received an email stating: "Just wanted to update that my bike was recovered! I cannot express how grateful I am to you, your site, and the amazing person that saw my bike on a scrap truck and got it back to me. My faith that there are good people out there is restored! This is the 3rd bike I've had stolen, and I'd already resigned myself to riding a Divvy until spring. I posted before I was able to get a police report filed, and had my bike before the police called me back. I'm amazed and grateful! I will be paying this forward ASAP."
